A fully Hermitian version of the nonsymmetric theory with sources

  • S. Ragusa
  • M. Bailyn


The nonsymmetrical theory of gravitation with sources of Borchsenius is derived in a fully Hermitian way. The term ofg[ik]g[ik] in the action is given a new interpretation, and a constrained path minimization method for obtaining the equation of motion of a point charge-mass is shown to be possible. The general equation of motion is derived directly from the matter and charge current parts of the Lagrangian.
